I think there have been some small omissions to this list - but i am a bit biased.

That guy from WA that was the go to for Race winning boards back in the 90s when pros drove ferraris and bought houses with their winnings and sponsorship dollars. Boards were fast , 5.5 kgs and strong as.

Priced about the same as boards are today - but in 90s dollars (so about 6 grand in today's money) - and there was usually a 20 board queue to get one.

They were windsurfing technology boards.

And that other guy from Norway who won world tour events as well as a Silver in the Olympics - and revolutionised light wind sailing, board range and created the new normal in modern wave boards (with some help from Scotty Mckercher)

I am guessing that guy from Norway is Starboards Svein Rasmussen (with help from a fair few others over the years )

Who was windsurfing technology boards?
